Video: Mayor Shows off His Sneaker Collection

Ok…so maybe this is a pretty weak trailer as far as film editing goes but if you really dig sneakers like we dig sneakers than this will be a 30 seconds well spent.

R.I.P. MP3 Posts

So fam…the unthinkable has happened.  The man has come down on us here at HNL Hip Hop.  For the third time in a month I’ve got hit with a DMCA violation and wordpress threatened to shut me down permanently.  I couldn’t have that so I struck a deal and told them that I woud cease to post MP3 downloads and wipe out all the ones I’ve put up since we began the site last March.  The reason I have to wipe out the archives is because mostly these violations I received come from older posts from months ago.  To all of the labels who understand the digital age and the changes in the music industry who have kept us up on MP3 downloads as a way of promoting their artists through the blogs, I got you fam.  And I’m hella sorry that you have to suffer for the actions of a few misguided and out of touch labels who think that posting their artists’ music hurts their sales.  Remember that without blogs people get their music through Limewire and are clueless about album release dates, artwork, any videos related to the project that aren’t on 106 & Park, and, by the way, they only download radio hits meaning you are not exposing your artists to new audiences.  But let me stop…I’m preaching to the choir on this one.

So fam, hurry up and get any of the MP3 downloads off the site that you’ve been wanting because they’re all coming down when I have a chance to take on that task (most likely this evening).  I’ll continue to post mixtape links as that’s new material that I don’t get violation notices for.  Perhaps in the very near future I can figure out a way to resume posting MP3 links but until then please check out my folks over at the New Music Cartel, KNOWxOne, and IllRoots for the latest in MP3 downloads and brand new music.  I’ll get this worked out fam…but once I erase all the work done so far its gone forever.  Get it while its hot.

One love,

Jay Smooth of Ill Doctrine speaks on the current economic situation and why we all need to vote for the “nerd we can believe in.”  That last one had me and my girl crackin’ up.
